We weren't supposed to have lapses like this after the lessons learned from 9/11... So if this story is accurate, the Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton's State Department will have some explaining to do because the American people are going to be livid... So livid that I believe it will have devastating consequences on Obama's reelection bid.

Exclusive: America 'was warned of embassy attack but did nothing'
Friday 14 September 2012
The US administration is now facing a crisis in Libya. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the "safe house" in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed "safe".
Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups, while some of the other documents are said to relate to oil contracts.
According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and "lockdown", under which movement is severely restricted.
